I use my android to take to the orphange where I teach English along with a speaker so we can play music and listening tracts, but it's almost impossible to get the files off the cloud and listen to them unless I unzip them first and then it takes up a lot of space on my phone. Is there a better way to download and unzip and MP3 from google drive or drop box and then play it on an android?

Generally the answer to this will be to retranscode all the audios at a lower bit rate + if there's only one track also retranscode as mono audios.

Usually spoke word can be restranscoded at must lower bit rate + lower sample rate + dramatically compress files.

Many times converting every 1G to <10M.

You'll likely use the LAME transcoder for this.
